Fanney Khan is a story filled with hopes, dreams, and lessons on relationships. It’s about a father who will stop at nothing to put his daughter on the grand stage as the next singing sensation of India.
Prashant Sharma (Anil Kapoor) is popularly known as Fanney Khan who had a dream of becoming a famous singer but fails to achieve it. Now, he works hard to make ends meet for his family. And although he couldn’t fulfill his dreams, he pinned his hopes on his daughter who he named after Lata Mangeshkar (as he hoped she will become like her).
To his surprise, Lata not only sings well but also dances like a superstar, however, things don’t go as they planned when Lata gets body shammed on stage due to her plus size.
Anil Kapoor hits all the right notes as a middle-class man in Mumbai who struggles to live between dreams and reality. So much that even his wife, Kavita (Divya Dutta) tries to be the voice of reason every day. Pihu Sand also leaves no stones unturned in capturing her character’s vulnerability. Moreover, as the hottest singer of the film, Baby Singh (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) looks befittingly graceful and nails her character well as the mature one of the bunch.
The talented actor Rajkummar Rao acts as the trusted friend character well as he reassures the audience with his personality. Moreover, while his chemistry with Baby Singh seems to be developing too quickly, his hilarious dialogues saves the day. Additionally, while the second half is very detailed in describing the story, the actors make sure to engage the audience with their amazing personalities.
Overall, Fanney Khan is a star-studded musical that shows how parents live their dreams through children and would do anything for their happiness. It does a good job in striking emotional cords within the audience and Anil Kapoor playing out the character of Fanney Khan makes the film even more worthwhile to watch!
